AGRICOLA PHOTO GALLERY
Central Europe, around 1670 A.D. The Plague which has raged for centuries has finally been overcome. The civilized world is revitalized. People are upgrading and extending their simple wooden houses. Fields must be plowed, sowed, and harvested.
People are living off millet gruel, bread, and vegetables. The famine of the previous years has also encouraged them to eat more meat (a habit that we continue to this day as our wealth is growing). In the end, the wealthiest player wins. Interestingly enough, animals that you do not eat contribute to your wealth. And now: off to the pastures, off to the stables: life at a farm never has been as exciting!
We have not reviewed this game yet but we can tell you that this is basically the gold standard of the building not destroying worker placement game. Creator Uwe Rosenberg is a legend, especially in this area, and the truly special game he created still holds up today as a testament to his ingenuity.

AGRICOLA HOW TO PLAY
You’re a farmer in a wooden shack with your spouse and little else. On a turn, you get to take only two actions (worker placement), one for you and one for the spouse, from all the possibilities you’ll find on a farm: collecting clay, wood, or stone; building fences; and so on. You might think about having kids in order to get more work accomplished, but first you need to expand your house.
